CockSUCKER! I agree with everybody who supports Swearnet (I've been one since they started leaking news about it) and I've raved about the Funtime Hour and I think it's just dandy that we all want to look on the bright side. I really wanna see that new short, too. But THIS is completely fucked. I've seen videos of the live shows and I just don't think they have the sweetness of the show. Those crowds are pretty wild, and the boys have to amp it up to stay on top of them. But it's the quieter moments, for me, that make the show so great. I didn't see many of them in the youtube videos of the live shows, although I've yet to see a complete recorded performance. And I'd still like to see 'em next time they're around, don't get me wrong. But a movie is the thing for them. This sounds like a typical suit-dummies decision based on the bottom line. Did the last film lose almost a million dollars? So what? Woody Allen made film after film that didn't make money, now he's back on a winning streak. Anyway, the last TPB film was years ago -- TPB has a much bigger U.S. following now and would open a lot bigger. I don't even know that the other films were released theatrically in the U.S. Considering how affordable the movie would be to make I'd say this is a lost opportunity both commercially and artistically. Hey, suit-dummies, if you spent $20 mil, the film breaks even at $40 mil. Put the boys on a massive U.S. junket and the film should bring that in pretty handily in the U.S. alone, where a film is a bomb at $40 mil. If it's a breakout hit, you're looking at a bonanza. Broker it with a rights deal on U.S. distribution of the show and it won't matter how much money the movie loses, because that syndication deal is so rich. Fucksakes.
